The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is coordinated by The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a not-for-profit organization. Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program - young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets, and sculptors, along with countless educators who support and encourage the creative process. This year, nearly 320,000 works of art and writing were submitted. Only the top 1 percent were recognized at the national level. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.
